Almost six months ago, Realme GT Neo launched in the Chinese market featuring the Dimensity 1200 5G SOC, a 120Hz AMOLED & 50W fast charging. Later, the phone was launched in the Indian market as the Realme X7 Max. Today, the company launched the successor in China, the Realme GT Neo 2. Speaking of the upgrades, the phone has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 chipset this time, 65W fast charging, a 5,000mAh battery, and improved cooling as well.

Design-wise, the phone comes with a different camera module design on the back which is quite similar to that of the OnePlus 9 series. There is a triple camera setup on the back and two separate flash modules. The front remains the same as Realme GT Neo as there is a flat display with a hole punch on the top left corner. There is no 3.5mm headphone jack which is weird since Realme boasted how the company did not ditch the headphone jack when the Realme X7 Max was launched in India.
